This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
One of my Sims was poking around in her grandmother's attic the other day and she found a cute little dress that her grandmother had worn as a child. She liked it so much that she immediately put it on and wanted to wear it everywhere! I was afraid it would wear out (it was old, after all), so I recreated the pattern and made my Sim some brand new dresses in nine different colours: purple, navy, chocolate, black, red, green, gold, raspberry, and teal.





These dresses can be worn as an Everyday outfit (perfect for school picture day) or as a Formal outfit (great for the holidays). The new mesh -- with working fat morph -- is included in the zip file.

Enjoy!

What's not to love about a little girl in a smock-like dress with puffy sleeves and knee socks? Takes me back to my childhood.
